The photographic exhibition called “El Sistema” (The System), a project from the German photographer Andreas Knapp, in the framework of the Viva Beethoven Festival, organized by the Elba Philharmonic is on view until March 25, 2017.
The photographs that will be presented in this exhibition are the result of the research of photographer Andreas Knapp on The National System of Youth and Children's Orchestras of Venezuela, which has provided genuine musical education for Venezuelan children. “The System” provides free music instruments and lessons for more than 700,000 low-income children and adolescents throughout the Venezuelan territory.
